Note

I churned my mixture in my machine for about 15 to 20 minutes, and while still slushy, poured it into individual containers and placed in the freezer for approximately 2 hours. They came out brilliantly, with no ice crystals, not too soft, not too hard and very, very tasty indeed! Enjoy!

This is a quick and easy recipe to use with an ice cream maker. I prefer a less sweet flavor so I increased the amount of lemon juice to 3 lemons and reduced the milk. Read More

This is yummy! I was worried it would be too sweet as the other reviews said but I found it perfect. This was my first attempt with my new Ice Cream Maker. It reminds me of a lemon cream dessert my gran used to make at xmas time. Read More

I used 3 sm lemons but forgot to zest (duh) till after I trashed the rinds. Thus found it light on lemon flavor so I added 1.5 t. lemon extract. Will play with this to get a standard juice amt and probably add another cup of milk. Was good alone but fantastic served with raspberries and blueberries on top. Tweak Edit: I had half a can of sweetened milk to use and though of this recipe. I only had 2 lemons juiced 2 and zested 1. Half can of sc milk 1 cup of ff half and half 1/2 cup whole milk. DD liked it MUCH better this way for eating alone less chalky. I think 4 juiced and 2 zested would suit our sour tastes better and next time I'll double my tweaks because it makes a tasty and cool treat in the heat. Read More

Creamy not icey! I really wanted to like this recipe but found it "sour" as opposed to "tart". I don't know why it surprised me but it is lemon and milk. My ingredients were fresh. To make this to our liking Hubby added Hershey's strawberry syrup to his and I made an orange float out of mine. Very good this way so all was not lost! Thank you for sharing your recipe jem I wish we had liked it with no changes. Read More

So good!! My family loved it...even the pickiest of the picky!! I never seem to use my icecream maker so it was great to get some mileage out of it. I can't imagine the taste of this dessert with strawberry syrup covering it but I guess to each his own? Read More
